I have had one meeting with the VC. He said it will be difficult finding me a job since I had been in the postal service since my twenties. Before that I was a stay at home Mom. What will happen if they cannot find me a job. Also, if it gets to be too much of a pain, can I now switch back to DR even though I am in the middle of this process.

Contact your union. It’s now 2018 you need a professional to review your file. You can also write to the Secretary of Labor for help or your congressman.

At age 62 DR converts to regular annuity and gets recalculated. You get full Social Securify. Before age 62 you get full social security too.... it is the DR that gets offset.

So after almost a year I have finally gotten my claims approved and one approved for monetary compensation. My question is how often they mail your check? Is it a monthly thing or bi-weekly?

/m31219 The boards on the Postal Employee Network and Federal Soup are much more active than this one. I believe you can get accurate answers on them.

If you are receiving OPM DR, at 62 can you get your full social security check?

Postal1. Did you appeal the ssdi denial? Most get turned down the 1st time. Now that you are over 60, you have a better chance of being approved.

Thank you but I had to apply for SSDI before I got the DR. I was denied.

You may qualify for ssdi. That would give you quite a bit more than regular social security. I was just approved in 3 months.Go to https://theowcpclassroom.blogspot.com. You can get advice and help there.

Hello, I was a victim of the NRP in 2009. I applied for OWCP but was denied so I settled on DR. My lawyer fought a second time for OWCP and in 2014 I was accepted. I switched to owcp in 2014. I was told to report to their doctor last month for a second opinion. Their doctor agreed with my surgeon, but said I can do sedentary work with my left hand. So Monday I meet with the vocational worker. Not sure what to expect and nervous about what kind of work I will be given. I worked at the PO 27 yrs and have no experience in other work. I am 61. I have bad hand and right arm. I have had two surgeries where I have screws and fusions. My left shoulder has a small rotator cuff tear. Going back to using my hand and arms means sleepless night and throbbing constant pain. Now that this process has started I am told I cannot go back on DR. I will be 62 in August and am thinking about retiring altogether but know it will be a struggle money-wise. Any advice? Not sure what is going to happen from here on.

Snowed. Didn't the rules change a few years ago saying whatever number of hours your restrictions allow, they only have to give you half, but no less than 2 hours a day to be a suitable job offer. OWCP would pay the rest.
